15 Minutes of Fame

The University of Iowa does a Dance Marathon to raise money for childhood cancer causes.  It is a student run organization that raises literally millions of dollars each year to support childhood cancer research as well as multiple endeavors that benefit children who are being treated for cancer or who have survived it.  It is a very good cause, and one that is dear to our hearts as we have a childhood cancer survivor under our roof.  Our second son, featured in this photo right under Herky, the University of Iowa mascot who is crowd surfing right over his head, spent hundreds of hours during his college career participating in Dance Marathon.  The photo is prominently featured at the local airport and has been for the past 2 1/2 years.  We love to visit it when we are there, and point him out, as we are doing here.  It is like an icon, something that represents him that we have nothing to do with.  He, however, is less fond of it.  It is the moment of fame that fails to completely fade away.  So beware of what you wish for.
